Mill Valley house description

You will be amazed at how this conveniently located property feels so peaceful and remote. You can enjoy it with your family, as a romantic hideaway or well earned retreat. It is only 20 minutes from San Francisco, 1 mile from downtown Mill Valley, 30 minutes to the Beach or Muir Woods. An excursion to the wine country is just 45 minutes away.

The home offers 3 lovely guest rooms that are included in the basic rental rate. The master has wonderful views of Mount Tam, a private fireplace and Jacuzzi tub. The two other guest rooms also have great views and their own full bathrooms with bath tubs. All the rooms are spacious, bright and warm. The 3 guest rooms are all on the top floor with all day sun and maximum views, and are the primary rentals.

For larger groups additional 4th and 5th* equally lovely bedrooms and a guest cottage can be made available for an extra charge. The extra rooms are on the entry level with a separate entrance possibility. The guest cottage is bright and sunny and detached but shares the bathroom with the 5th bedroom. (see rates below)

*The 5th bedroom can be closed off from the main home with an accordion door and the owner occasionally keeps it for private use when the home is not fully rented and she is in residence. She makes it available for large groups upon request and when she is not in residence. The owner does not have access to the public areas of the primary residence during rentals.

You will want to cook up a storm in the gorgeous kitchen. Counters are granite, cabinets maple and the views, spectacular. The kitchen is open, airy and enjoys all day sun. There is a formal dining room with a gorgeous custom chenille mahogany wood table, living room with sunken fireplace, and cozy family room with a wood burning stove.

The home is spacious with high ceilings, views in every direction hardwood floors and plush carpets in the family room and bedrooms. It is casually elegant with the outside incorporated within. Pictures simply cannot capture the lovely and peaceful ambiance experienced immediately when you enter the front door.

This sun-drenched home offers world class hiking and mountain biking right from the front porch. There are so many day trips and outside adventures available, but you will have a hard time leaving the sun and tranquility of the many decks and pool. Many a day I have gazed at the fog far off in the distance horizon reminding me that my sun drenched home is a magical enclave of warm sunny skies.

In keeping with the gorgeous setting, the home itself is 'green'. The cleaning products are all natural with no artificial fragrances, the soaps are scented with all natural organic lavender essential oil and detergents are fragrance free. The pool is solar heated and cleaned with a silver mineral system instead of chlorine.

Treat your self, your family, your friends; come share my peace of heaven on earth.

                      Additional information about rental rates

                      Fees:

                      • Refundable Damage Deposit $650
                      • Pet Fee $20
                      • Housekeeping $275
                      • Taxes Included

                      Notes:

                      The home is situated on a peaceful canyon. Out of respect for my neighbors right to enjoy that peace, I agreed to impose a 10 pm rule. Guests need to plan their outside times on decks, in the spa and by the pool, to be inside by 10 p.m. Violations of this rule can result in forfeiting of the damage deposit. If there is any damage, in addition to outside noise after 10 p.m., guests will be billed.

                      Location

                      The home is unique in that it is surrounded by Redwoods yet has all day south facing sun. It is incredibly quiet and peaceful, with a private pool and wonderful views. Situated at the base of Mt. Tam, you can hike and then sun by the pool. Restaurants and shopping in Mill Valley are first class. Or, you can go on sightseeing adventures to Muir Woods, Stinson Beach or Napa. This is a fantastic vacation home or weekend get-a-way. (There is also a trampoline for the kids). Mill Valley offers several day camps for the kids so the entire family can enjoy a real summer vacation.
